Juventus midfielder Marchisio has spoken of interest being shown in him from various clubs in the premier league.
Marchisio has been an influential figure in the recent Juventus teams and has been an important factor for them winning all the trophies they have in recent years. He has been recognized as an important member of the national side too and is one of the players around which the team is built. He is established quite a name for himself as a versatile midfielder and his star is sure to gain more traction as he grabs headlines for a purported move to the premier league.
According to quotes of his in the Express, the interest is mainly stemming from Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.
“Sometimes I have received phone calls from agents who told me of the interest of clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.
“But no one from these clubs, however, has never contacted directly us. And in case I would tell them to talk to Juve.” Marchisio is quoted as saying by Express.
At 28 years old Marchisio has a wealth of experience at his disposal and with his versatility he would be like a Rosicky, able to play anywhere in the midfield. This would be a massive boost to Arsenal as can be seen with their current predicament with injuries.
Marchisio would command a fee of £20 million but his sale from Juventus probably hinges on what happens to Pogba. It has been rumoured that Juventus would be willing to sell one of Pogba or Marchisio and not both, so if Pogba can’t find a buyer, Arsenal very much stand a chance to secure the signing of Marchisio.
